ASBURY PARK, N.J. – Not even Todd Frazier and friends have been safe from the aggressive wild turkey population reportedly plaguing an adult community in New Jersey, according to the MLB all-star’s tweets.
Residents of an Ocean County 55-and-up community are being attacked by the gaggle of up to 60 wild turkeys, according to reports this week.
Frazier, a Toms River, New Jersey, native, tweeted Sunday morning a photo of his black Jeep surrounded by birds, just a day after he tweeted complaining about all the recent fowl play in town.
“They are a big problem here,” Frazier tweeted. “They have come close to harming my family and friends, ruined my cars, trashed my yard and much more…”
The tweet was re-tweeted more than 100 times and favorited more than 1,000 times as of Monday morning.
Residents in a nearby community told News12 that the wild turkeys are flocking in front of cars and doorways, damaging property and even biting and attacking people who try to shoo them away.
Others also chimed in on social media about the nuisance the angry birds have caused.
Frazier in another tweet appealed to Gov. Phil Murphy for help with the town’s turkey trouble.
According to the report, animal control is unable to do anything about these rogue turkeys because they can’t trap wildlife.
As of early Sunday morning, Murphy had yet to respond.
